Holla! Our wedding website is practically finished. Put a cherry on top of that WordPress Sundae and call it good.
I think I mentioned before that I had planned on creating an absolutely extravagant wedding website using Joomla, Flash, etc.
Yeah, about that…
Joomla is wicked hard. Flash is fun, but time consuming. I needed a site that Travis could help me update without having to teach him code or FTPing (even though he’s interested). Instead I turned to my old friend WordPress, found a free customizable template, bought our domain and hosting and voila http://www.durtty.com was born. C’est parfait.
I customized the template using our wedding color palette and pictures of St. Croix (don’t make fun of my animated GIF). We’ve added a ton of information about the wedding, St. Croix and travel information. It will be the number one resource for our wedding guests and we will be updating it frequently.
I also used Google docs to create an RSVP and newsletter sign-up form. It was super easy.
So that is how I created a wedding website that didn’t cause me to go into .PHP seizures. As my favorite recording artist, Jason Mraz, would say, “Life is wonderful.”
